Off the top of my head I am not sure you can mix those cichlids successfully without a very large tank, but I'll defer to one of our resident cichlid experts.
Alright im pretty sure they will be fine none of them show any signs of physical damage and there in my puny tank.

Apistogramma and ram cichlids are the only cichlids for your tank size but only one pair of them. There are rainbow fish, sailfin mollies, and angels. It depends on what you consider large and the parameters of your water

Do you think the green terror, parrot, and convict can live together for three more months?

No that will allow enough time to establish territories and then the aggression will come out

But they have been in this tank for a long time and none of the fins are hurt. O and this topic is pointless for some reason my fish learned within these days to come up when i walk up to the tank. I love seeing them there super awesome

They are coming up because the think you are feeding them. Fish adjust to a routine quickly feeding the same time of day encourages this.
In that case consider yourself lucky. I only have personal experience with convicts but the ones you have are close to full grown and will start taking a territory and defending it any time now. The ones I had attacked and killed all the other dither fish I had in the tank with them and then the female

I'd really take their advice, and move them ASAP. You don't want anyone dead, do you?
